On this cart, I have cleaned out carb twice. Battery good. It runs shortly then dies out. Micro switchesx4 has been replaced. Spark plug good. Gas is good and getting to carb.


Determine if it is running out of fuel or no spark.
If it stalls but will run on carb spray or starting fluid
sprayed in carb opening then the fuel has problems.
If it will not run on the starting fluid then the spark is weak
or failing due to bad wiring or coils. Once you isolate
the problem to fuel or spark then you can probe those areas.
Be sure compression is good also. 100 psi at least.

Cub Cadet has gas, has spark, has air -still won't start/run


Are you pulling the plug to check for wetness after cranking it a few times, WITHOUT using the starting fluid? Also, I would recommend using carb cleaner in place of the starting fluid. Starting fluid runs the engine VERY hot for a brief time and can possibly damage rings, valves, and aluminum parts.

Do you get spark? Is fuel making it's way to the carb.? If no spark need new coil, if no fuel clean carb. and rebuild.

Runs on starting fluid, not fuel. cleaned carb with carb cleaner(aerosol) ,still won't run. Primer (purge) bulb doesn't work properly. Spark plug dry, fuel lines clean. Diaphram problem or something...


Try spraying a little gas where you spray starter fluid. If it runs you may have to install diaphram kit. If it has a choke can get around primer not working.

Turns over won't start. hasn't run in over a year and has had problems idling while cold. thinking carb needs cleaning... thoughts?


check and clean carb, try a lil carb fluid in carb to fire, also check the usual things for a tune up: cap & rotor, wires , also if its sat for a year add some clean fuel, condensation in fuel tanks and lines will wreak havoc, and will clog even brand new fuel filters

Engine starts easily, but doesnt stay running. removed fuel cap, still the same, pulled off fuel line, its not plugged. With the air cleaner off if I spray in starting fluid it keeps running, but will stop...


sounds like a fuel problem in the gas tank or carb. If bad gas or debris gets into the carb fuel bowl, this will fowl up or clog the jets after you start to run your engine. you need to remove your carb and clean the fuel bowl and jets. use a jet carb cleaner to do this. without knowing what type of engine, make sure all ur jets are clean. use a fine wire to insure they are clean and put te carb back together. also check and clean the fuel valve area of the carb, the fuel line, and the fuel tank. never use last years gas and always run your equipment out of gas before you store it for the winter.

88 Toyota Corolla backfires through carburetor.


If that is carbureted, and has a mechanical fuel pump, try running a length of fuel line from inlet side of pump to a gas can that has fresh, clean fuel, and if it runs good that way, you know problem is most likely in the tank. Removing the tank & cleaning it out is best solution from there. I'd even be tempted to add a small bottle or 2 of Lucas Fuel Sytem Cleaner to first fill in clean tank, just to help clean lines as well as carb.

I have a Echo chainsaw model 452Vl and am not able to start it.


Hi, It does have a filter of sorts but is on the pickup inside the tank and should not need changed. Drain the fuel mixture and check all of the plastic lines and primer bulb for cracks or kinks. Put in a fresh fuel mixture that has not been sitting, (They don't run on old mix) and try starting again. The thought process is that if it starts on the starting fluid it can only be two things, old fuel or no fuel. If the fuel change doesn't work it is probably not getting fuel thru the carb, these oil mixes gum up rather quickly and if it sat for awhile with fuel in it it may need the carb cleaned. Good Luck to you, hope this Fixsya!
